1*) Install the ports during FreeBSD installation.
2*) Create a script to update the ports by using a simple tutorial.
3*) Install Portinstall using the ports.
4) Type "portinstall ejabberd" and wait passively until it is installed.
5) Change some stuff in the ejabberd config file.
6) Eventually add a line to /etc/rc.conf to automatically start ejabberd after 
a reboot.
7) Start ejabberd.

(*) Only needed once.

You probably need to compile a patched Erlang; at least more difficult than 
FreeBSD ;-)

Sounds nice.
